WFC Greenland: Inuk

Gah! This DVD only has German subtitles. Two of them!

Some of the dialogue is in Danish, though, and I can kinda sorta almost read German, so I decided to go for it anyway. I’m shocked at how much German I’m able to parse.

Movies from Greenland have a tendency to focus on the more exotic parts of living there, so it’s refreshing to watch an “urban” film from Greenland.

But then all that changes one third into the film and we’re off to the north and the ice and everything is just about how you’d expect. The encouraging speeches and everything.

It manages to be kinda original even while doing the dog sled thing. But it’s kinda hokey.

But I really like the actors.

But but but.

Inuk. Mike Magidson. 2010. Greenland.

    1. I really wanted to watch Qaqqat Alanngui, but the Greenlandish site didn’t want to sell that film to anyone outside Greenland/Denmark. But then it seemed like it was available at the Greenland consulate (?) in Copenhagen, so I tried to convince a friend of mine the other week (who was visiting Copenhagen) to get a copy for me, but he forgot, so I was stuck with Inuk. *sigh*
